Nykaa founder and CEO Falguni Nayar recently shared some advice with the fresh graduates of Bennett University. She told the youngsters that curiosity would always give them an edge because learning is integral to growth.
The country's wealthiest self-made woman entrepreneur said on Saturday that even now, she is constantly learning.
"As an entrepreneur, I am constantly learning, be it about technology, developing innovation in retail or understanding consumer insights," Falguni Nayar said, as per a Times of India report.
"Curiosity will always give you an edge because learning is integral to growth. Whether it's a road less travelled or not, take the path you want to take. As you graduate today, remember to shine the spotlight on yourself and introspect often, course correct when needed and never stop believing in yourself."
At the fourth convocation of Bennett University, Nayar was also conferred with a Doctor of Philosophy (Honoris Causa) in the field of Business for her accomplishments.
